I came here on a little visit with friends, the grounds are immaculate, the castle itself is gorgeous, I love all the opulence in each room and all the guides in each room were very knowledgeable. I also enjoyed going round the Knights maze but was glad when we finally reached the middle. Lovely way to spend a few hours.

The castle is 'homely' - which may seem a strange thing to say, but though very much a castle outside it has the feel of a country house in many parts inside. It is only 200 years old - in this County of medieval houses, positively a Wimpey home in terms of time - and although some of the paintwork... More

Lovely grounds and well cared for. We went for the tractor ted family day and left disappointed. The only tractor ted theme was a bouncy inflatable. The kids were so excited but left feeling cheated about lack of tractor ted.

I visited with My wife and her parents for second visit in 2 years. The castle is great and the grounds lovely however my quote from my first visit still stands ""Lovely location but let down by its Cafe." The café is disgrace and let's down the whole place. Service is non existent and food that is over priced. The... More

Came here for Father's Day with my partner, step children (7yrs&10yrs) and my dog. It's not the closest attraction we could have visited but we're so glad we did. We were swung by the welcoming of dogs all areas, meaning we could enjoy a day out without having to leave early to get back to the dog, yet we could... More

Mixed feelings about this place. The area is very nice, relaxing and you could easily spend a day there walking around the grounds. And they seem to have a lot of things on, the falconry display when we went and its great for kids to let off steam. However.....firstly, it is expensive! entrance fees are not the cheapest £10 an...

Visit here several times a year always find the castle interesting and the views from the windows spectacular, house guides are always happy to partake in conversation and you can learn something new every visit. On a nice day we like to spend time in the grounds and maybe bring a picnic,

We visited the Castle and Grounds on one of their Knights & Jousting days, the children enjoyed it although not much for them to do I was expecting more as photos of previous show knights in Armour walking around but we didn't see any. The grounds of the Castle are wonderful and it was the highlight of the boys day,... More

We had a wonderful wedding at Eastnor and the venue was great. It looks grand and very well maintained for its age. Our only disappointment is that they failed to iron the table cloth used for the wedding breakfast despite promising us that they will do so. :___( The staff do appeared distant, but still professional, helpful and well organised....
